On  September 18, 2000, from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m., the Institute for Law
and the Humanities and the Institute for Science, Law and Technology
ay Chicago-Kent College of Law will host a symposium entitled "Art,
Science and Free Speech:  The Work of Eduardo Kac."  Eduardo Kac is
an assistant professor of art and technology at the School of the Art
Institute of Chicago.  The symposium will focus on one of his
well-known transgenic works, "GFP Bunny," a living bunny created with
the green flourescent protein gene of a jellyfish that glows green
when exposed to blue light.

The other panelists are Dr. Christiane Paul, curator of new media
arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and editor and
publisher of Intelligent Agent, a print and online magazine about
interactive media technology in arts and education; Dr. Stuart Newman
of the New York Medical College who applied for a patent on a process
used to make human-chimp chimeras to prevent anyone else from using
the technique; and Professor Sheldon Nahmod of Chicago-Kent, a
well-known expert on constitutional law, the First Amendment, civil
rights, and the law of Section 1983.

After the symposium Eduardo Kac will sign his new book:
"Telepresence, Biotelematics, Transgenic Art". More information on
the book is available at http://www.ekac.org/tbtta.html.
